East Beach Vista (Front Unit) Santa Barbara

East Beach Vista has an unbeatable location with easy access to all Santa Barbara offers! The location is unmatched. 






As the front unit of a coastal duplex, this freshly updated two-bedroom, one-bath cottage is a mere one-half block from East Beach, all its attractions, and the beauty of the beach that stretches out for miles. 

Freshly updated, the home is equipped for comfort and ease of getting around; The Santa Barbara Zoo, East Beach volleyball courts, East Beach Batting Cages, and the historic Cabrillo Bath House are all minutes away. Sundays are ideal for strolling through the Art Walk all along Cabrillo Boulevard.

Sitting in the bright and sunny living room on two new couches allows for conversation, TV watching, or a well-deserved nap! Beneath a picture window framing ocean and park views is a generous-sized window seat and dining table, making this a great place to pull out a city map and plan the day's excursions. The kitchen features new appliances and amenities that make preparing meals, picnics, and snacks effortless. When it comes to grocery shopping, Tri-County Produce Co. is a point of destination for fresh organic produce and gourmet ingredients, so plan to pop over and stock up upon arrival. Not into cooking? Great dining spots are within walking distance, such as Reunion Kitchen & Drink, Convivo, East Beach Tacos, and Hamburger Habit. 

The primary bedroom is equipped with a comfortable king-sized bed and large mirrored closets, while the second bedroom has a queen-size bed. The remodeled bathroom has a shower-tub combination and a single sink set in granite. There is access to a detached laundry off the garage and, shared with the back unit. 

As is typical with many Santa Barbara oceanside homes, this unit does not have air conditioning, though fans are provided for warmer days. Because of the neighborhood park and proximity to the street, some noise is to be expected; only street parking is available for this unit. 

And remember, if traveling with a larger group, the attached three-bedroom back unit, East Beach Bungalow, can comfortably accommodate up to six more guests! (Link to entire property - East Beach Escape)

Beautiful rental in great location
This is a wonderful 2BR rental. Totally refinished and nicely decorated. Fully equipped. Santa Barbara vacation rental was great to work with.
Nov 2023
Great Stay!!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here on the Milpas property in Santa Barbara. Very cute, lots of room for just the two of us. Close to the beach, also a Waterview, which was really important to me. Within walking distance of restaurants. We would stay here again. ☀️
Oct 2023
Perfect Place!
This was the perfect place to stay with my family of four during our vacation to Santa Barbara! The location is great - ocean view, quick walk to the beach and restaurants. It was also wonderful that they had beach towels, chairs and boogie boards available for use at the beach. The home itself was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay again!
Oct 2023
Great Stay!!
Wonderful location, comfortable beds, clean and decorated nicely. Great communication and easy check-in and check out.

Steps form the Beach!
The house was very pleasant and located steps away from the beach. It is a casual neighborhood, but we enjoyed a lot of restaurants and beach walks given the great location! We found parking right across the street and were able to keep an eye on our car for the stay of the trip.

Excellent Location!
This property was lovely, well designed, well equipped, great beds, excellent location with many restaurants close by. My only complaint is that there is not a lot of light from outside. Having said that I was there during unusual weather with rain, clouds and cold. The good outweighed the light issue enough that if I returned I think I would still stay there.

The home is a real gem!
Absolutely wonderful! Thank you for a picture perfect weekend. The home is a real gem and perfect for our family.
Feb 2023
We would absolutely stay here again!
We couldn't be happier with our stay in Santa Barbara. The house was very clean, comfortable, and well equipped. It is incredibly well located - only a short drive to State Street, the wharf, or Montecito, and only half a block from the beach. Management was very communicative and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again.
Jan 2023
Convenient location by the beach!
Convenient location by the beach. Parking easier to find at night, which is the only challenge but the place was very clean and had all amenities needed. Great view of the beach area.
Dec 2022
Great spot, all very nice!
This home is an outstanding location to the beach, nearby restaurants and a great organic grocery. The front unit was super comfortable for 4 adults, well appointed, clean and had great natural light. Communication with property manager was efficient and responsive. We would return and recommend!

Beautiful Property!
Loved the place and location. Will be back.

Excellent Beach Location!
Excellent beach location and fully updated home made this property a perfect choice for our stay in Santa Barbara.

We would like to rent this beach house again!
This two bedroom home is well located close to the beach (200+ steps away, restaurants (Convivo our favorite only 100 steps away), Stearns Pier and State Street, all within walking distance. The property is well-maintained with a nice kitchen, bathroom, dining area and living room with window views of the ocean. Everything that we needed was at this location as far as utensils, plates, cooking ware, tea kettle and coffee maker. Washer and Dryer worked great, enjoyed using beach towels and chairs, and very convenient to nearby grocery market. If we come back to the area, we would like to rent this Beach house again.
Mar 2022
Wonderful Rental Right By The Beach!
Beautiful, clean property in a fabulous location. We walked to the beach, pier, Chase Palm Park and Zoo. It was perfect for our needs--there is a beautiful view of the ocean from the kitchen and front room. We'd definitely stay here again!
Jan 2022
Highly Recommend
This house was great! Super clean and great location walking distance to the beach and a great little grocery store.

Jan 2022
Simple, Easy, Beautiful
If you're looking for a comfy, close to the beach, quiet & close enough to the Funk Zone down the road, this is your spot. You can take in the sunrise and the glow of the sunset. I'll be back for sure!
Dec 2021
Very clean!
Short walk to the beach and great views from the kitchen window. Kitchen had everything we needed to dine in

On Point Location and Accommodation in SB
The property is well located close to the beach, restaurants, other sightseeing spots. The property is well-maintained two bedroom wonderful view to the beach walk a block away from the pier. Very satisfied with the price and amenities that are offered. Everything that is needed is at this location as far as utensils plates cooking ware linens sheets towels. The only thing needed is groceries. Look forward to renting and reserving this beach house again in the near future!
Nov 2021
Great Place!
Very spotlessly clean and all the basic stuff: coffee, salt, etc. Full kitchen with pots, pans and plates. They even had beach towels for the shore that was all of a block away. Loved the view of the waves as we were hanging out having coffee in the am!
Nov 2021
Beautiful & Most Ideal Location
This house is perfect. It was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities and comforts of home. The location is perfect- a block away from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and to State St. We would stay here again.
Nov 2021
Would Book Here Again
The place was clean upon arrival, more space than I anticipated, and is in an excellent location! Would stay here again
Oct 2021
SB Stay
Cute spot, and amazing location!
Oct 2021
Would Gladly Stay Here Again!
This is a beautiful location walking distance to the beach. The house is large and very clean, and it had a full kitchen. Wi-fi worked great. There's a grocery story across the street that currently has a taco truck in the evenings, so you can easily get food if you're not in the mood to drive anywhere. If you want to be in the middle of things, it's a 5-10 minute drive over to State Street, which is filled with shops and restaurants. Since you're right on a street, there was quite a bit of car noise so you might want to bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. Highly recommend this location.
Oct 2021
Great Location | Can't Be Beat!
Within walking and bike riding distance of lots of great spots. Easy check in/check out.
Oct 2021
Great Location. Lovely, Clean Home
Very responsive management company. Perfectly stocked kitchen. Stress-free check in and check out. We had a wonderful vacation.
Sep 2021
Perfect Spot
Truly perfect. Easy short walk to beach (literally less than a block). "High-end" interior design and accessories. Great kitchen. Open the windows and wonderful cross breeze from the ocean air. Unobstructed view of the ocean from the kitchen table over an open park. Parking is not hard and was available every night during the July4th weekend on street in front of house. Nice walk to the pier. Can walk or drive to State Street easily. All of the "life" of Santa Barbara on the ocean is at your fingertips. I could not recommend this place more if you love the ocean, love a view of the ocean, and want easy access to the beach.
Jul 2021
Would 10/10 Recommend!
Expect a great spot, in a great location, with a great beach view.
Jun 2021
Absolutely Fantastic Location!
I stayed for almost a week and started every morning with a nice walk along the beach which was less than a block away! Also walking distance to a lot of restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and even the batting cages. I like getting my steps in so I was also able to walk to downtown Santa Barbara just over a mile away which was great. I worked remotely from the Airbnb and the wi-fi was fast and the Airbnb itself was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again
Jun 2021
The House Was Wonderful!
Perfect location to the beach, about a 15-20 minute walk to the main downtown area, and walking distance to coffee/rite aid/etc. Street parking only, but I never had a problem finding a spot within a few blocks of the house. Very clean! Plenty of towels. Very comfortable house for an enjoyable stay. The living room/kitchen area was quite loud with a busy street right out front and could get a bit warm but overall the place was wonderful and I would recommend staying there!
Jun 2021
Family Friendly
Great location for kids. Walk everywhere - the beach, restaurants and the zoo! Plenty of room for the kids to play around in the shared space and rooms were good size for all of the stuff that comes with kids :) Place was clean and again - perfect location!
May 2021
Great Beach Trip!
The property is exactly as described. It was clean and comfortable. It is on a busy street, but it was quiet at night and we loved being so close to the beach. We would stay here again.

Close access to Beach

Loved our stay!
“We absolutely loved our stay at the East Beach Vista! The location is amazing. It was so great to be so close to the beach. It's also an easy 1 mile walk to the offerings of State Street and Stearns Wharf. It's a little bit of a busy neighborhood, but it was not a bother for us. The home was just the right size for our family of 4, and it's decor was fresh, modern and clean. Although we didn't prepare any full meals there, the kitchen is well-appointed with newer appliances. We would definitely stay there again!”
Aug 2020
Short distance to beach and Zoo
“We deeply appreciated the chance to have this beautiful beach getaway. It was well appointed, comfortable, in a fabulous location for us to walk to the beach and the zoo, and the listing was exactly as described. Indeed there's a bit of noise from the traffic and the park but it didn't bother us much. The great location was worth it!”
Aug 2020
Best Location
“Probably the best Airbnb location in Santa Barbara. About 50 yards from the glorious East Beach. The unit is clean and nice with perfect views of the beach and walking to shopping, food and the wharf.”
Jul 2020
Perfect Location!
“This place is just as pictured. It was super clean with everything you will need during the stay. The location is perfect! It is across the street from a park, the grocery store is at one end of the block and East Beach is at the other end of the block. It is on a busier road which is not really noticeable with the windows closed. It is a little louder with the windows open but nothing that is unbearable.”
Jul 2020
The house was great!
Jul 2020

Great location, clean, all comforts of home.
Two adults and our two kids (10 and 13) found this home very comfortable. It was clean with a new kitchen, fully stocked with kitchen supplies. Internet connection was very good. The bedrooms in the front unit are in the back, so there really wasn't much road or train noise. Very clean and nice.
Aug 2019
Would stay here again!
Wonderful location. Walking distance to East beach and a delicious taco spot we frequented during our stay. The space was quaint and very comfortable. When I had questions, the hosts responded in a timely manner. I would definitely stay at this airbnb again.
Jul 2019
The location of this place is perfect! Right across from East Beach and just a 10 min walk to the zoo. Downtown is also pretty close, just a few mins away driving. It's also well appointed and very clean. Would definitely stay here again!
